Much has changed in the tax law for individuals & businesses

Tax changes adopted to address the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in several new wrinkles with 2020 tax returns as well as some that can also have an impact on 2018 and 2019 returns. In addition, tax changes proposed in the President’s American Rescue Plan promise additional complexity for 2021 tax returns and could influence decisions as to the best time to file 2020 returns. The changes affect both individual and business tax returns, and include individual and business tax relief, extension of expiring tax provisions, qualified retirement plan changes, and retroactive disaster relief provisions.

“Taxpayers will find much has changed in the tax law for both individuals and businesses, and those changes will present both challenges and planning opportunities to try to maximize the tax benefits,” said Mark Luscombe, JD, LLM, CPA and Principal Federal Tax Analyst for Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting.
